I can't help with much new song stuff, either...especially since I think 'built to last' and songs they penned in that era are among some of the worst ever. Man, I hate that album.

anyway, earlier era stuff that never appeared on an official release could include the amazing version of "Man Smart Women Smarter" from 4/19/82...the Ravenspace show.

agreed grendel ( except I like Victim ) however I think they would have had some good ones on the last album if they didnt overproduce it like BTL/ I love the last disc on SMR. Of ocurse there woul dhave been some REAL embarrssing moments too like any Phil or Vince song

Victim was certainly better live (as was Foolish Heart, tho' I still don't care for it all that much)...

I can't imagine what Vince songs would have been given how atrocius Brent songs were (as Jon Stewart might add in his best New Jersey accent, btw: "no disrespect").

btw, anyone get the new Road Trips discs yet? I have listened to both the regular and bonus disc and give it about a 6 out of 10...maybe need to go back and listen again...I actually like the "Eyes" from 9/18/90 included on the Bonus disc, despite Vince's HEAVY candy-kane keys...it's well-paced and jammed...) but the main section of Dark Star>PITB>Dark Star from the 9/20/90 show really underwhelmed me. I think i should have held off on buying this one.

i have an AUD of 9-20 and have never seen a reason to upgrade and certainly not BUY a release. I think 89-91 was the last consistant worthwhile run for the band ( ironically considering I dislike the Built to Last songs as much as you )with lost of hot moments but I've always thought 9-20 was over blown
